Wade Carmichael has conquered the 2015 Hawaiian Pro, the first jewel of the Triple Crown of Surfing, held in Haleiwa, on the North Shore of Oahu.
Carmichael, 23, jumped over 40 spots in the Qualifying Series rankings - he is the 13th - and will likely join the 2016 Championship Tour (CT) if he secures a good result at the upcoming Vans World Cup of Surfing.
In the final heat of the event, Carmichael defeated Filipe Toled, Ezekiel Lau and Dusty Payne, with a series of powerful maneuvers in the small-to-medium wave faces.
